French (AFNOR) standards for steel materials

AFNOR standards for steel materials


Review of AFNOR Standards for Steel consists of 3 volumes. It contains formally approved AFNOR standard classifications, guides, practices, specifications, test methods, and terminology and related material such as proposals.


The following data is given for each standard: standard number and year, grade, chemical composition, and mechanical properties (yield point, tensile strength, notch toughness). When deemed useful, steel type, manufacturing method, thickness of plate, heat treatment, and other data are described.

This group of AFNOR standard specifications covers the carbon and alloy steels, plates and forgings used in boilers and pressure vessels, high-strength low-alloy, rolled steel floor plates, heat-treatable steels, hot and cold-rolled plates for cold forming, and free cutting steels; the steel for concrete reinforcement and prestressed concrete; and the properties for railway service rails and accessories. This volume covers the carbon and alloy tool steels. This volume covers the properties of stainless, heat-resisting and valve steels. To give review of standards for steel plate, sheet, and strip used in various applications; the properties of assorted types of steel wire, stainless and heat resisting steel wire, e.g.
